Dear Brother:
I was this day applied to by the wife of Bro Simmons who was killed for some thousand pounds of flour said to be in the commissary department of Davis Mil district. This woman is the daughter of Bro Thomas Grover, you will please say to Bro Grover that he is considered able to take care of his children and you will please to look after the family and if they need help from the Church afford it. The flour turned into the commissary department cannot be used for any such purpose.

I remain very truly your
Brother in the Gospel of Christ

Signed D. H. Wells
